Long time since I looked in on here and loads of lovely vintage in that time. @Capetown Emiel has really been going for it - really like the endor set with the folded MOCs, and brilliant that @Frunkstar got those baggies.

@roundster I think I have the only Non signed Kellerman in existence.

Here are a couple of my new buys, Lucasfilm promotional Han Hoth slides and loose Takara Zetca 3PO and R2. The 3PO is really tough to find 3BED38DA-9C6E-40AF-B190-C4EBD0E01E7C.jpeg05084E0A-974F-4D2D-896E-BEA5543F0621.jpeg

Added a few new variants to the collection. Two came in a big package from America, one from Singapore and one from Spain, but all arrived in the same week. It was like Christmas came early :D
- painted torso Leia Boushh (standing over the 1st one sent in the post who forgot to switch the thermal detonator off)
- PBP purple torso Han Hoth
- Lili Ledy Retorno Yoda
- POCH Rebel Soldier

Yes lovely items, my guess is cabin pressure fluctuation on the Leia?

All of the painted torso Boushh I’ve had are very fragile. Most of them the legs don’t move at all but don’t stand correctly. You’d want to move the legs a fraction to aid balance but I’m afraid if I did it would shatter. The torso is so brittle. The first figure I received arrived decapitated. Third time lucky happy to say.

Looks great...that’s the best way to display a loose limb C3PO.
